as the birth place of bluegrass, and it's called the city of firsts. however, this week's vice presidential debate is not the first for the city of danville, kentucky. population just over 16,000. spotlight is not just on the city, but it's on vice president joe biden. comedian and political podcast host, man, your title gets longer every week, ben gleeb is here now. don't screw this up. you're on probation. >> i'll do my best, no promises. >> what can we expect from this debate from joe biden. all the president bush is on him following the president aes performance during his own debate which was not great. >> this is true. i think he needs to tell the american peel he can't be blamed for the top of his ticket and i think he needs to make sure he doesn't make many of his usual biden gaffes. hopefully he doesn't accidentally call paul ryan ryan paul or confuse him with paul rudd, tell him he was great in "40-year-old virgin." on the flip side i think paul rayan doesn't need to fall into the sarah palin trap and refer to joe as o'biden. and perhaps if biden wants to actually have some facts
in zone a and there are hundreds more in shelters across the city. first i want to thank those who are taking quick action to ensure their own safety and to make it easier for the rest of us. i want to thank all the people that are here working, they are volunteers and doing a phenomenal job and i would like to give everybody a little bit more of an update on the city's preparation for hurricane sandy right now. the hurricane -- earlier today i signed an executive order for t the mandatory evacuation of homes and businesses in -- the low lying coastal areas of the city. to reiterate what are the low-lying areas, zone a included manhattan beach along the east river in brooklyn, all of the rock aways and also hamilton beach and broad channels in queens, all of the coastline in staten island, city island, and another patch of the south bronx, battery park city, and stretches of the the west side water front and of the lower east side village in manhattan. there are two maps on display there, which we have and which we're trying to get. which show the areas as zone a, but the bottom li
storm sandy. we are also getting new tape in, this is feeding in now, wtvi out of atlantic city. first aerials of the boardwalk, of course the famous boardwalk, sections that were washed away. you can see the boats that are just tossed about there, the homes are right there on the water. and just remnants of what the boardwalk used to be, as it just goes out into the water. 11,000 people spend the night in red cross shelters in that area. but this is one of the first aerials that we're seeing from the famous boardwalk out of atlantic city. ali velshi was in atlantic city last night and it was extraordinary to see just how quickly the water had risen and when he was doing those reports, got up one point to his waist. it really was a city that, for the most part, people hunkered down. he did not see a lot of people out on the streets. it was pretty much abandoned. in the light of day, you're just beginning to get a sense of the damage and devastation that that atlantic city area has experienced, particularly the boardwalk area, and the commercial area that was abandoned last night. for t
as well. he's on the streets of your city. first of all, mayor, what precautions have you taken right now? how are the folks in atlantic city holding up? >> wolf, good evening. we're trying to get through this and do the best that we can to cope with a very difficult situation. we have been successful in getting some of our residents to heed the warnings that we presented to them friday and yesterday to evacuate the barrier island and move to higher ground. unfortunately, not as many folks as we would have liked have taken heed to that warning. back during the last catastrophic event that we experienced, that being hurricane irene, we achieved a 98% evacuation rate. but for whatever reason, this time, we haven't reached that number yet. we think we're somewhere having evacuated several thousand people. but we still have too many people in atlantic city. that creates a very uncomfortable situation for all of our emergency responders and officials are still trying to do the best we can to get people out of harm's way. >> mayor, ali velshi is on the streets of atlantic city. right now, the w
the position is now 395 miles east of new york city. it's the first time we're seeing that mentioned in a position statement. so much to talk about. so little time. here's a look at the movement you can see to the northeast at 10 miles per hour. a category one hurricane. we're expecting it to come in as a hurricane. last year during irene there was a lot of talk that it came in as a strong tropical storm, but this will be a strong storm and a large one, and they will impact us many many different ways. one of the ways we'll be impacted, and it was noted on the last hurricane advisory was it was storm surge. that's not just the rain falling from the sky. we're going to get a lot of rain, and we'll see the piling up of the water in dangerous areas, possibly long island sound or even new york harbor. what happens when the hurricane winds -- once it starts getting into that shallow coastal area, it has nowhere else to go, brook, but up and out and inland. storm surge can travel many, many miles. we've seen that before with past hurricanes. this is a big concern for this system particular

about it, this was a devastating storm, maybe the worst that we have ever experienced. our first responders have been doing a heroic job protecting our city and saving lives and they are still fighting fires and conducting life-saving search and rescue missions, and we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude. the storm bought something like 23 serious fires to parts of staten island, brooklyn, queens, city island and the bronx. the terrible fire on breezy point is now under control but we believe we lost more than 80 houses. and the search and recovery operations there are ongoing. if any of you saw the pictures on television, it looked like a forest fire out in the midwest. the winds were just devastating blowing from one building to the next one and those buildings were close together. we are hoping and praying that there was no loss of life in those fires, but even if we can save every life, which kn we kn people have lost their homes, and i want them to know they have our full support in the days and weeks ahead. the 76 shelters we opened will remain open today and we will con
